Welcome We Are Committed to Polk County On that day, the team that manages Floyd Medical Center and its many services began managing the daily operations of Polk Medical Center with a promise to build a new facility. That new, 25-bed critical access hospital building opened two years later as a center for medical care in Polk County, Georgia. Now, Polk Medical Center, backed by the comprehensive resources of the Floyd health system, is thriving. In 2017, Polk Medical Center, with the support of the Floyd system, was established as a full participant, economic engine and leader in the Polk County community. Inside this report to the community, you’ll see examples of our commitment to quality, the outreach efforts that are touching thousands of lives and the value of Polk Medical Center to our community. Together, Floyd and Polk contributed $74.9 million in community benefit efforts and activities to the people of northwest Georgia and northeast Alabama. Polk Medical Center has a $45 million economic impact on the local and state economies, and nearly every resident, student and employee in Polk County was touched by a Polk community benefit effort in 2017. More important are the examples of employees who have taken our commitment to quality service and community leadership and lived it out, providing extraordinary acts of compassion and service. We hope you’ll take time to read these stories that help paint a portrait of Floyd Polk Medical Center. We are caregivers, volunteers, community leaders and families who are invested, engaged and committed to providing care that goes beyond expectations to help our community to live well. April 1, 2012, marked a new beginning for Polk Medical Center.
